Matthew Roberts, The Wrongs of "Rights"

The Wrongs of “Rights”
Posted by Matthew Roberts on October 16, 2007

Is this akin to the criticism of ideology by conservatives (such as Russell Kirk)? Or cannot [at least some] rights be grounded in laws universally applicable? What is missing in the article is the connection between right and justice and law, and the historical argument seems to have been overthrown by the research of people like Brian Tierney and Annabel Brett. I will have to finish Fr. Lachance's book on droit and find out what he says about subjective active right.
